What do you think of whenever you hear the phrase “summer holiday”? In my case, all I can think of would be: sun, friends, swimming, and – of course – the beach! Unfortunately, I have other things to do this summer. I am currently completing my internship commitment (of which I would share in details in my next posts), which makes my summer slightly different from what I can imagine.
For my ultimate summer holiday, it’s imperative for me to put sunscreen on! Sometimes, I don’t even bring my swimsuits, but I always bring my sunscreen with me whenever I spend my days outdoors (especially around the pool, beach, and anytime under the sun!). Here are a number of tips from this website about applying sunscreens:
- Reapply sunscreen in every two hours! This is something I did not know before. No wonder I got sunburn in Belitung – I did not reapply my sunscreen as often. The sunburn really hurt my skin – it’s far from some sexy tan! Good thing my traveling mate brought some after sun gel with aloe vera that soothed my skin directly.
- Sunscreen should be applied 1.5 hours before going out to the sun. Most people only apply sunscreen right before they spend their time outdoors. Apparently, if we put sunscreen earlier, it gives time for our skin to absorb the sunscreen and its ingredients.
- Makeup and moisturizers with sunscreens are never enough. We still need to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen if we are going under the sun for hours.
When we talk about under-the-sun skin treatments, we can never miss NIVEA. I remember how I used to apply NIVEA creams whenever I wanted to swim under the sun. I’ve been following @NIVEA_ID’s timeline and been envious about the NIVEA Sun Land event going on in Kuta Beach as we speak.
Anyone can come visit NIVEA Sun Land at Kuta Beach this weekend for free. There are several activities that would make us all yearn to be there and enjoy the ultimate summer holiday. There are longchairs that could be used by visitors for free, bouncy castle for kids, have massage in Massage Land (with a purchase of NIVEA Sun products), photo booth, volleyball arena, and cool lounge. There are also band and DJ performances. Moreover, visitors can win a BlackBerry Apollo by tweeting pictures of #NIVEASunLand and win MAP gift vouchers from on-the spot quizzes.
From the event reports also, I was curious to know more about NIVEA’s line of NIVEA Sun products. NIVEA Sun is the number 1 suncare brand worldwide.
Apparently, there are far more negative effects of sun rays other than getting burnt. The scariest one would of course be skin cancer and wrinkles, but in the short term, our skin might get really dull and dry. NIVEA Sun has a wide range of products that would help us protect our skin from the negative effects of sun rays. It includes Body Sun Protection with a variety of SPF amount. NIVEA Sun has those with SPF 20, 30, and 50. They also have Face Sun protection products, which are face creams with SPF 50. Moreover, NIVEA also has NIVEA Sun Moisturising After Sun Lotion (which I would really need if I ever get sunburn again).
I really can’t wait to have my (delayed version of) summer holiday! Perhaps this September. Can’t wait to get my hands on on the new range of NIVEA Sun too!
P.S.: NIVEA Sun Land at Kuta Beach is still on until tomorrow. Anyone of you is coming? :)
